Maybe Beane's Sh*t Can Work In The (One-Game) Postseason

Billy Beane's famous quote about his magic approach failing to yield desired results in the postseason perhaps gets an answer from new A's owner Lew Wolff, who recommends an abbreviation of the postseason:
Lew Wolff has a way to shorten baseball's postseason: Make the first round best-of-one.

"I'd make it one-game-and-you're-out for the first series," the Oakland Athletics owner said Wednesday. "It would be exciting. It would be great."

Begun in 1995, the division series has been a best-of-five competition. Some people have advocated it be expanded to best-of-seven, matching the league championship series and the World Series. Baseball commissioner Bud Selig has repeatedly said he favors the current format.

Wolff said he hasn't brought up his concept with Selig.

"No, I'm afraid to do that," he said.
